If you’ve sustained injuries in a serious car accident, you may feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to turn. In addition to the medical appointments and pain from your injuries, you believe you’re entitled to compensation for the damage done—but how much and from who? Figuring it out on your own can be frustrating and not always as productive as you’d like. Below are four reasons to hire an experienced attorney if you’ve been in an accident.

  1. Someone to look out for your best interests. When you hire a car accident attorney to represent you, your rights and needs are their sole focus. As the victim of an accident, you’re most likely dealing with an insurance company that wants to hold on to their profits as long as possible, and/or a negligent driver whose biggest concern is shifting the blame away from themselves.
  2. Ensure you understand your rights and options. Which avenue should you pursue to receive the damages you’re entitled to? Insurance settlement? Personal injury lawsuit? Your attorney will get all the case details and help you assess your options. The attorney will also be able to walk you through the process, deadlines, and likely time frame of your case and give you all the information you need to make the best decision.
  3. Determine the correct amount of compensation you will need. You’re probably well aware of the medical bills pouring in right now, but what about the cost of care you’ll need in the future? There may be many additional expenses down the road, such as physical therapy, medical equipment, and additional surgical procedures. You are also entitled to compensation for lost wages and loss of future income if your injuries prevent you from continuing the same career path. In California, accident victims can also seek damages for “pain and suffering”—non-economic damages that can be particularly challenging to calculate.
  4. To build the strongest case possible if you’re going to court. Your attorney will investigate the accident independently and know the best experts to assemble to support your case. They also know the local court system and the deadlines and procedures for filing the necessary paperwork for your case.

There’s no cost to talk to an attorney and your damages may be significantly lower if you attempt to go it alone. We have the experience you need after a serious accident.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
